USA Today Features New Moon

 

 

USA Today has this great article about New Moon, along with these pictures.

Growing Charms:

In New Moon, “Edward does make a stupid mistake by leaving Bella, and that allows Jacob in,” says director Chris Weitz. “You can understand why Bella starts to develop feelings for him. He’s the right man at a frightening time for her, and his devotion is touching. Even die-hard Edward people will understand.”

Stewart, 19, certainly enjoyed the change of pace on camera. “Both of them make me feel completely different,” she says of her co-stars. “Taylor is an impulsive actor, not Method at all. It’s very easy to smile with him. With Rob, we both tend to worry and over-analyze everything.”

Choosing teams:

It’s a fantasy that many find irresistible. “We want to be fought over,” says relationship expert Gilda Carle. “It makes us feel more like a prize. And a suitor wants to fight over us, so he feels he has won a prize, something not so easily gotten. In real life, triangles are horrible. But by vicariously enjoying them in books and movies, we can deal with them more appropriately.”

And more competitively, too. Ever since New Moon was published in 2006, fans have been declaring themselves members of either Team Edward or Team Jacob.

Attachments have only deepened now that Edward and Jacob have been made flesh on the big screen by attractive actors. “It’s been amazing to watch this group of relative unknowns now on the front of magazines on a weekly basis,” says TwilightMOMs media director Kirsten Starkweather, 40, of Clovis, Calif. “A lot of people who didn’t care for Jacob in the book have changed their opinion of him because of how Taylor plays him. I do think this movie will bring Jacob and Taylor to the forefront.”
